Flower Decoder

Happy Monday everyone! I can't believe how quickly weekends go by. Boston is kind of glum this morning after the Patriots loss last night, what did you all think of the Superbowl/Halftime Show/Commercials?

I managed to do some damage online at in the wee hours of Sunday morning and ordered basically everything I was lusting after and part of my order has already shipped! I hope Target comes through with this designer collaboration (still lamenting the absence of some Missoni items in my home). Did you get anything from the line, did you brave the stores? I want to hear all the stories!

Valentine's Day is next week, and there is heavy advertising for flower shops all over. Rue La La (an awesome sample sale site, if you're not a member yet, click here to join) has put together an awesome guide on their blog just in time for Valentine's Day about the message your flowers are sending to the recipient. I didn't realize some flowers had so much underlying meaning!

My absolute favorite flower is a red rose. I also love daffodils, I think they're just so happy looking! Do you have a favorite flower?
